@sunsetmoth Hi there, currently the bot checks whether there is a caption for the media. It doesn't know if the text with it describes the media or not.

Do you think there is a way we could improve it?

Also if you you don't wanna any more messages you can leave unfollowed the bot. Sorry for any spam!

@jannamark@octodon.social Ah ok, I have manually unfollowed you so will see if that sorts it out.

@jannamark@octodon.social Looks like the follow request to your account is pending, if you accept the follow I will start messaging you!

Let me know if this sounds wrong.


Looks like things did go wrong, if you had your account locked and was following this account you would receive multiple follow requests.

That is now fixed hopefully, also a reminder: If you don't want the bot to follow you unfollow the bot.

Sorry for any annoyance.

Hi everyone, just realised that I haven't been following people - I've changed my internal wiring to fix that.

You should now get a follow. If anything that's unexpected happens, please let me know.

@KendanKip There's a bot for that. @PleaseCaption. Follow it and it will DM you when your non-DM posts have images without captions.

@PleaseCaption is a good bot - if you forget to add photo captions, it'll DM you immediately so you can delete and re-draft!

🔔 To get started:

1. Follow me and I'll start to follow you back
2. Every time you forget to add a text description to an image I will send you a reminder.

Don't want reminders anymore Unfollow me!

You can add a text description to images on most clients.

Here's a guide on how to write description (or 'alt text'): www2.le.ac.uk/webcentre/plone/
